Trade data analytics and its sources

If you are looking to understand trade data and information first you need to understand who uses it, this is information that can be used by a trader or analyst to understand the movement of one type of product or currency pair over a period of time. For example, if you have an interest in agricultural commodities, you may be able to use trade data to predict trends in the price of particular grains like wheat, barley and corn. The use of this data can help you make decisions about what types of stocks to buy or sell.

Another important piece of US trade data is that of the raw commodity. The prices of a variety of commodities are a fundamental part of a trader’s decision making process. By accessing the data that is associated with the commodity you can better determine how to price your stock or options and can help you position yourself for success. There are many ways to access these data.

One way is to visit the US Department of Commerce, (DOTC). The DOTC has developed a number of web sites which allow the user to access their database of trade and import data, as well as their industrial classification system, which is used to rate all goods and services for purity, quality, standards and condition. These systems are used by companies to determine which goods should be classified as “maritime” or “maritime steel”. The classification of goods and services which are either “maritime” or “maritime steel” is dictated by the classification systems put in place by the United States Department of commerce. Also there are various online portals that are providing a deep guide on trade data in the US for business.

Shipping Tariffs: Study the Data behind Tariffs

Another source of US trade data is the United States Census Bureau. This is a government entity that collects data on almost everything the US sees fit. These data sets are used to create statistical reports, like the one produced by the DOTC. This report provides an analysis of the value of the goods and services that are imported into the country and exported from it. Because this statistical report is a non-tariff measure, the data provided does not have any trade deficit impact on the United States balance sheet.

To get the most out of data on imports and exports, it is important to examine all sources of data at their face value. Many sources of US trade data are compiled by compiling the data according to the rates at which they were shipped, versus the rates at which they were received. These rates are often quite different than the rates at which they were actually received, because many non-tariff measures are factored into the rates at which they are calculated.

For instance, when a company to ship its freight from one point in the world to another point in the world, it may be subject to various non-tariff barriers to the shipping hazard. These can be caused by higher costs of transportation, by different modes of shipping being available to a company, or by international licensing restrictions. If a company wants to be able to study the relationship between these barriers and the movement of shipments of freight, they will first need access to the pertinent trade data. That is why it is often useful to examine the US trade data behind the invoice of a shipment, and then contact the shipper to find out what their rates are on similar shipments. If the rates quoted are significantly different than the rates shown in the invoice, the shipper should consider adjusting its rates before sending its freight overseas.
